Leading Westinghouse iQ Drive® Air Conditioner is a Consumers Digest Best Buy
Westinghouse FS4BI iQ Drive offers innovative technology and high value.
St. Louis, July 17, 2013 - Providing exceptional heating and air conditioning units is important to the experts at Westinghouse heating and air. This is evidenced in the FS4BI iQ Drive air conditioner. This high-efficiency air conditioning unit has been named a Consumers Digest Best Buy for the third time - receiving the distinction in 2009/2010 and 2011/2012 as well. Recipients of the prestigious, third-party Best Buy distinction are recognized for providing outstanding value to consumers.
On average, fewer than 3 percent of competing models in any given product category are named a Consumers Digest Best Buy. The Westinghouse FS4BI received this honor, in part, because of its position as the only air conditioning unit, to date, to use an inverter-driven rotary compressor. Additionally, this unit achieves high-efficiency levels, 24.5 SEER, and has some of the lowest sound levels in the HVAC industry - as low as 59 decibels.
Since the Consumers Digest recognition, the Westinghouse FS4BI iQ Drive air conditioner has been re-rated to an even higher 25.5 SEER - making it the highest cooling efficiency available and a testament to the robustness of inverter technology.
The modulation capabilities of the FS4BIâ€™s compressor allow it to fluctuate between 40 and 118 percent capacity. Because of this ability to modulate, the unit is able to almost always remain on and operating at low levels, avoiding energy-guzzling on-off cycles.
The Westinghouse FS4BI iQ Drive air conditioner has not only been recognized by Consumers Digest, but it has also been named one of the ENERGY STAR ®Most Efficient air conditioning units. Those HVAC systems named as being the Most Efficient are recognized for reaching the highest efficiency levels in the entire HVAC industry.
